September 22nd, 2013 is International Bereaved Father’s Day. A day founded by Carly Marie over at Project Heal.
It is a day to honour those fathers who know the pain of losing a child, and to acknowledge that they are still fathers.
When your child dies you learn to parent them in a different way. Opportunities to say their name, remember them, and show others you are a father to that child as well, can an important part of honouring your child.
This year I asked the fathers in the Sands group if they would like to be part of a tribute to them and their children. Thank you to the Fathers that shared their children with us – Trevor, Jon, Cole, Craig, Michael, Andrew and Damien.
